Name Jeff H
Experience Level 4/5
Remarks I watch for satellites every night I can, and always see at least one any time i go and look - all directions, polar N->S, S->N, W-E - this was traveling extremely fast, very large fireball nearly white, very short trail that followed the ball, no apparent smoke of persistent residue, tracked it East until it flared slightly and just went out.
